Deborah Serani, PhD, descended into a debilitating depression as a teenager, attempting suicide at age nineteen. The fallout from this major depressive episode required her to take a medical leave from college in order to recover. Crediting psychotherapy as life-saving, Serani directed her focus to the field of psychology and graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Hofstra University in 1982, a Doctorate in Psychology from the Ferkauf School at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1989, and a Post-Doctoral Certificate in Psychoanalysis from the Derner institute at Adelphi University in 2002. This week, we discuss Dr. Serani’s new book, Depression and Your Child: A Guide for Parents and Caregivers.
